The Land Transporation Office (LTO) is now using an automated plate making machine called the ‘IDeROBOT’.
The said machine, operating at LTO’s Quezon City office, is capable of producing 700 plates an hour, and up to 5,600 plates in an 8-hour shift.
“Pitong daang (700) plaka kada oras ang kayang i-produce ng IDeROBOT, na ngayo’y nagdudulot ng mas mabilis, mas sistematiko at mas ligtas na paggawa ng plaka. Tinatayang aabot sa mahigit 5,600 plaka ang maipo-produce sa isang 8-hour shift kada araw,” DOTr said.
DOTr said that the newest machine is in addition to LTO’s five manual plate making machines and seven units of manual embossing machines that are capable of producing 22,000 plates per day.
